First, the seat belt be held in the correct position across your child’s body. And second, they will also be better protected from a side impact.

Top tips for buying a group 2-3 car seat
Because children grow at different rates, your child’s weight is much more important than their age, so bear that in mind when deciding when’s best to move them to the next stage.
When forward facing, do not use on a front passenger seat unless your vehicle manufacturer declares it safe to do so in your vehicle handbook. Always check the vehicle handbook for correct vehicle seat positioning.
